Just bad timing.

It is unusual though that the Sox were able to do this yesterday with announcements of this sort supposedly embargoed during the World Series...Bud must have given permission.

To me the bigger question is why since the season ended has Gonzo not been on Chicago Tribune Live! talking about the Sox?

They do talk about the club (occasionally...) but it's never been with Gonzo since the season ended.

You'd think the guy who covers the team on a daily basis would be asked to participate.

A lot of times, they are cool with big announcements during the World Series if it is done on an off day. They just don't want it conflicting with the games.
